Moving Music from Ipod

Using the Rhythmbox utility- you can move your music from your Ipod to your computer and also transfer to some other device using USB. The Method is simple-

Use your Linux Operating System ( if you have a Windows PC- you can create a dual booting application using the USB Flash Drive Netbook Remix from http://www.ubuntu.com )

Use Rhythmbox to open your IPod.

Drag and Drop the song from the Rhythmbox playlist to your device/ computer or other device after it is copied.

Note- It is not really advised to illegeally transfer music, as there are better options like streaming music already available. Try http://www.playlist.com and see right margin of the other blog I have for building the playlist using online means- www.dudeofdata.com

Ubuntu uses Rhythmbox for playing songs and uses FSpot and Gimp for images. The audio quality is excellent ( even if you are using very old hardware like I do) and Gimp is the best image manipulation software -comparable to ones from Adobe- intuitive and easy.
